Campaign Fundraising Not a Problem for Kennedy
BOSTON — Congressman Joe Kennedy III has announced that Kennedy for Massachusetts has raised over $650,000 in this third fundraising quarter.
On average the campaign has brought in $100,000 a week since Kennedy opened his Senate account at the end of August, raising over $400,000 in the past month.
Kennedy ended the month of September with $4.2 million cash on hand. A previous recipient of corporate PAC money, Kennedy took the No Corporate PAC pledge in early September before getting in the Senate race. Additionally, he has called for a People's Pledge to keep dark money out of the primary election.
" I'm humbled by all the support we have received in the early days of this campaign, giving us the resources we need to travel across the commonwealth and highlight the voices and places that our current system takes for granted and leaves behind," said Congressman Kennedy.
" From Boston to Springfield, Gloucester to Fall River, I look forward to earning the trust of voters across Massachusetts over the next several months," Kennedy added.
Over the past several weeks, Kennedy has visited food pantries, homeless shelters, community health centers, affordable housing complexes, and sat down with young men involved in the criminal justice system, immigrants, veterans, and local fisherman to champion the people he believes should be at the heart of the Commonwealth's fight.
